Who doesn’t love a great snack? Snacks are what help us get by between meals. Unfortunately, many of the best snacks have gluten in them. That’s not a big deal unless you have Celiac disease or you’re simply trying to go gluten-free.

When you’re gluten-free, a lot of snacks are taken off the table both figuratively and literally.

But it doesn’t have to be that way.
